Ratings for online streaming shows from places such as Netflix are still a new concept, but Variety has received some official numbers from Symphony Advanced Media that give us a look behind the curtain of online streaming media. They reported numbers from September 21, 2015, to May 2, 2016.
Symphony Advanced Media reports that Fuller House, the spinoff of Full House, was one of the most popular shows on Netflix with a total of 21.51 million adult viewers and an 11.31 demo rating. Numbers like this will hold up to the best shows you will find on broadcast networks.
Other well-rated Netflix Originals are The Ranch with 9.54 million viewers and a 4.34 share and F Is for Family with 7.01 million viewers and a 3.47 share.
Amazon Prime Video’s Transparent had 612,000 viewers and Catastrophe had 1.27 million viewers.
Hulu’s original The Mindy Project had 1.63 million viewers with a 0.88 share. Their Stephen King miniseries 11.22.63 had 5.31 million adult viewers with a 2.53 demo rating.
When you compare these ratings to ratings of some of HBO’s biggest shows it just reveals how dominant Netflix really is. HBO’s Silicon Valley had 2.42 million viewers, Girls had 1.31 million, and Veep had 1.53 million viewers.
Clearly Netflix is not only dominant in subscribers but also in views.
